Wondering what to do with all of that summer zucchini? Here’s 20 fun and easy zucchini noodle recipes to get you inspired!
If you have never tried zucchini noodles, now is the time! These light and delicious alternatives to traditional pasta will rock your world.
Zucchini noodles, also called zoodles, are popping up everywhere in the healthy eating communities. They are fun, easy to make, and super versatile. They have way fewer carbs that traditional pastas and can be very easily digested. Plus you are adding another full serving of vegetables to your meal when you load your plate with these beauties.
There are several ways to make zucchini noodles:
- You can simply use a vegetable peeler to cut the zucchini into long, thin ribbons.
- You can also use a mandolin to slice the zucchini super thin.
- A julienne peeler will cut your zucchini into thin noodles as well.
- My personal favorite is a handy kitchen gadget called a spiralizer. You can get a smaller hand-held one or use the counter top version. I have both and love them equally.
So, go ahead and give it a try. You will LOVE these grain free alternatives to traditions pasta.
